Sixth child dies from Australian jumping castle tragedy

An 11-year-old boy died on Sunday, from a jumping castle accident in Australia’s island state Tasmania, taking the death toll from the tragedy to six children.

Police said, it was too early to say when they would complete an investigation into the cause of the accident and need to respect grieving families and the school community.

“We don’t want to rush it, but we also understand that the community wants answers,” Tasmania Police Commissioner Darren Hine said.

The state has called in help from New South Wales state police to help interview the other grade five and six children who were at the event.

An online fundraiser to support the victims’ families has raised nearly A$1.

3 million ($926,000) over the past three days from people all over the country and abroad.
